February 15, 2017
GRAND FORKS, N.D.—February could get a little toasty, but the warmer temperatures could help melt the rest of the snow and, in turn, lessen spring flooding for some areas of the Red River Valley.
After a brief cold snap moved into the region last week, temperatures have been about 20 degrees above normal, according to the National Weather Service. Highs statewide have lingered in the high 30s this week and are expected to climb into the low and mid-40s by the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
